FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) -- Thomas A. Carboni, 56, who pleaded guilty to one count of child molestation last month, was sentenced to eight years in prison, with eight years suspended.

According to court documents, Carboni admitted to touching a 3-year-old girl between March 2011 and May 2013. The crimes came to light after a woman came forward claiming that Carboni had been molesting her daughter.

As part of his plea deal, Carboni pleaded guilty to one Class C felony and five counts of molestation were dropped. Carboni will be on probation for up to four years.
